Each Friday we are selecting our favourite social media activity from the Goalball Family and beyond.
We hope that this round-up can help to keep you entertained and provide inspiration to stay active!!
This week we are starting off with some interesting insight from the Youth Sport Trust, which highlights the link between physical activity and happiness levels…

Insight from the @Sport_England Secondary Teacher Training programme shows a clear link between physical activity and happiness levels in our secondary schools.#ReturntoPE pic.twitter.com/mMfE8Wa17p
On World Sight Day the RNIB teamed up with Kellogg’s to highlight the inaccessible nature of some food packaging, and how it can be changed…
Information on packaging can often be in very small print, making it difficult for blind and partially sighted people to read. To mark #WorldSightDay, we’ve partnered with @KelloggsUKI to launch Coco Pops boxes with @navilens codes so all the information on the box is accessible pic.twitter.com/1V5wS8ZcVW— RNIB (@RNIB) October 8, 2020

Sarah Leiter has made a return to the running track with her guide, Les!
Great morning on the running track with Les! It was so good to be back. We practiced running without a tether and more distance and are planning to get back to our regular running now. #GuideRunning. @CamUniSport @GoalballUK pic.twitter.com/KdlZTBHYgV— Sarah Leiter (@SarahLeiter) October 5, 2020
And finally, Kali Holder undertook a strength and conditioning session this week, giving her a great fitness baseline ready for her return to goalball!!
First @TalentedAthlete S and C session complete yesterday evening! Great to get a baseline and a starting point. Now onwards and upwards. Looking forward to the year ahead! pic.twitter.com/k4t5cVLNHu— Kali Holder (@Kali_Holder) October 8, 2020
